Auto shop management software increases GP by 8% for AutoWorks of Tampa

Meet AutoWorks of Tampa.

Today, we’re shining the spotlight on AutoWorks of Tampa. Now pioneering a team of ASE-certified technicians, owner Bob Noriega first discovered his love for cars as a teen and, later, grew his passion into a successful business.

Established in 2009, this full-service automotive repair center specializes in both domestic and foreign vehicles. Family-owned and operated, AutoWorks of Tampa takes pride in the quality of service they provide, using only the latest diagnostic equipment and best-in-class replacement parts. Their “service with a smile” mentality and keen attention to detail paid off, having been named a recipient of the critic’s choice award for Best Auto Shop in the Tampa Bay area.

The challenge.

Daily shop management was far from easy for Bob, who spent much of his time manually crunching numbers. He also struggled with finding a way to price out his ROs so they could make a decent profit. Overall, the shop’s operations were inefficient and Bob knew that something needed to change.

The results.

After struggling with a clunky and time-consuming SMS, Bob decided to try Shop-Ware. Immediately, after adjusting the gross profit margins using Shop-Ware’s GP Optimizer tool, AutoWorks of Tampa hit its monthly targets for the first time ever. Not only did Bob have the best year in shop efficiency and profitability, but another big win was the extra time he had from not having to be at the shop every day.

The takeaway.

Like many shop owners, Bob struggled with efficient shop management. After implementing Shop-Ware, his gross profits soared and the shop was running itself. Shop-Ware’s GP Optimizer tool was instrumental in both increasing profits and reducing the manual work Bob needed to do to get there. GP Optimizer instantly increased Bob’s GP by 8%, allowing him to more easily run a successful business. There is no better example of more time, more profit than AutoWorks of Tampa.

“After implementing Shop-Ware, my monthly gross profit went from 50% to 58%. With Shop-Ware, I put extra gross profit dollars on the bottom line every year.”
